A typical Black Country Ales house, with more hand pumps than you can count, but the beers are listed on video screens. Personally, I like to look at the pump clips but in this pub there's not much choice in the matter, as the bar hangers make it impossible anyway. So, 20 beers listed and the standout for me was Sarah Hughes Snowflake 8%, a winter warmer or barley wine. Good job I only had time for a half. My notes made at the time (over a year ago) remind me that the servers were overworked and uninterested, which is perhaps a little harsh. At the rate they were working they didn't have the time for niceties.

Our first visit to this Black Country Ales pub which is in the 2019 Good Beer Guide. Seating on a variety of levels but a lot of stairs and no disabled loo for those that may need one. Massive selection of real ales available and a brilliant TV screen of the beers. Great on a quiet lunchtime but if folk sit right along the bar as stated in a previous post I can imagine seeing the clips to help choose your beer could be difficult. We enjoyed our Weetwood Cheshire Plain and Milestone Pekka. A beer festival due to be held here in a couple of weeks.

Very good Black Country ales pub with a great choice of beers. It is a long way from the old Green Dragon!
My only gripe is the row of locals the full length of the bar who made no attempt to give way to any other customers. That said I would call again due to the beer!
